Our Holiday Wish Lists: Kimberly Phillips


Job: Managing Editor.

Favorite Holiday Song: Jingle Bells by Bing Crosby and The Andrews Sisters.

Best Winter Treat: Red and Green Jelly Wreaths – I think about them all year.

Wish List: Oh! It’s hard to pick just one! Right now there are three items on my wish list. (And lucky for me, they coordinate!)

1. City Wall Throw

I would like to thank Diane von Furstenberg for encouraging Suki Cheema to design textiles inspired by his travels. They’re a visual treat, and his City Wall Throw is an effortlessly stylish accent for any room.  

2. Uten.Silo I

I love the story behind this product. It was inspired by a multi-pocketed fabric storage system and intended to be easily mass-produced in plastic. Unfortunately, because of the oil embargo in the mid-70s, plastics became too costly to produce, and it fell out of production – until it was reissued by Vitra Design Museum in 2002. 

3. Coatrack Dots


The Dots are a quirky way to hang coats, dog leashes, bags, just about anything. But it’s because of the designers’ humorous quote that they made my wish list: "Being a very social set of hooks, the Dots love to welcome other Dots to join them on the wall. The only thing the Dots demand from you is that you uncover them every now and then to admire their shape and material."
